Life During Wartime (LDW) @ 2022 Northwest String Summit


I’ve seen this Talking Heads tribute band a few times before last year. However, no band is better than when they are playing in the woods in the middle of the night.

Not my best photo, as I took it from inside our VRBO in Joshua Tree. By the time I got outside, this coyote had taken flight.

The dog that saved me

Root Glacier (Alaska)

Less than an hour before this photo taken, I came face to face with a bear on the trail to this glacier. Unlike other bears I have met in the wild, this one didn’t run the other way. Instead, it started up the trail toward me. I know, you’re supposed to “get big” when you are in a bear staredown, but my natural instinct was to back up. The dog in this photo was 50-100 feet behind me on the trail and decided to get between me and the bear. That scared the bear off, and so I’m still here to tell the story.
